We stayed here last week when we got to Asuncion. From the pictures,it looked quirky, fun and clean. When we arrived, we were shown to a room by a nice receptionist who said she spoke English but who actually couldnt (not too much of a problem as I speak a bit of Spanish).
BEDS: Big, with good sized lockers underneath. Sad to say that there was a piece of mice poop on the ledge beside my bed and the walls were covered in cobwebs the size of hammocks.
BREAKFAST: One bread roll, one packet of butter and one packet of Doce de Leche. To drink, coffe or juice - which had tiny ants floating in it. (when pointed out to the receptionist, she merely poured it down the drain and didnt even apologise.)
FACILITIES: Internet is good, the communal room is OK, again, filthy (ie dusty etc) and there is a ?7inch screen tele with cable which doesnt plug in. Next to a really poor area of Asuncion so is apparantly one of the areas to avoid but we never had a problem. One thing that creeped me out was the old man (cleaner) who would sit outside the shower whilst you were in it (theres a big glass panel). LOCKED toilets outside which was quite scary during the night and annoying to have to keep finding the key when bursting to use the loo!
STAFF: Nice, little bit reserved.
OVERALL: The hostel was like a ghost town. Its placed on site for the old train station so its quite dark and eerie. The only other people in he hostel were two young lads who told us they were leaving the hostel that night. After that, there was just myself and my boyfriend. Needless to say, we moved on quite quickly.
Would we stay there again? Not even if it were free.
